Checking out

Part of your contract is to leave your accommodation as you found it when you first moved in. It’s therefore up to you and your flatmates to leave it clean and tidy, no matter if you’re the first to leave or the last. To ensure everyone does their bit, we recommend agreeing with your flatmates who will do what from the checklist below.

Possible charges on departure

Don’t spend more money than you have to. Here’s how to avoid any additional charges:

  • Make sure to return your key/key card to us. If you don’t, we’ll have to replace the locks. This will cost you £75. It’s much cheaper for you to pay £20 for a key/ key card replacement as soon as you lose yours.
  • Don’t forget to clean and tidy your accommodation. If you leave your room, bathroom/toilet and/or kitchen dirty, cleaning charges will apply.
  • Ensure you leave your accommodation as you found it. If any items are missing from your flat, or you’ve damaged it in any way, you’ll be charged for repairs and replacements.
